Subject: A Gringo Teenage Boy Working? Yikes!
Isn't that child abuse? Should we call in the authorities? That boy should be home, undisturbed, allowed to "entertaini himself" on those, ya know "internet sites" [ahem]; not out working in a grocery store - stacking Kimberly Clark products no less. Talk about a distant past fantasy.

This film is a keeper. For many reasons. A white teenage boy actually working, and then a look at a restaurant menu with a porterhouse steak, like $2.35 a la carte. (Thank you. I'll have two). The chick declines garlic salad dressing. Ha ha! If you're old enough, you remember when garlic cloves, one third the size they are these days, had enough "punch" to them, that 1/2 clove in a family sized pot of food would have you all smelling "like a Hunky" for 4 days. People really had a garlic phobia in those days, This chick was no exception.

The acting in this film is horrendous in spots. I really like those Kleenex boxes, though. Very tasteful looking. Simple design. Fit in even on a dining room table (hmmm, who picks their nose at a dining room table? Oh well. None of my business)

I guess busting into a restaurant like a herd of cows heading to their stanchions in the barn at milking time wasn't acceptable behavior in 1960. Oh wait...that era did predate "The Great Society" by a few years. So that figures.

Fun film that teaches the young uns how to present yourself at the Dinner Table. Typical how-to etiquette is presented, nothing too out of the ordinary.. I like how the sponsor of the film, Kimberly-Clark, made damn sure a paper towel / kleenex was in every scene :))) Highly reccomended!
